  1. I had a set last winter in WI. They are outstanding and a hell of a lot quieter and smoother driving than KO2! Most snow I had them in was about 12", no problem in 2wd. Icy conditions they were excellent as well, they almost stop as good as the wifes Bizzaks. I can only compare to Cooper AT3 and Cooper Zeon in the snow and I would take the Wildpeaks every time. We'll see how they do this winter with 16,000 miles on them.
  2. I had the DDM 5000k version of those morimotos, was a definite upgrade over factory, think it was about $200 off Amazon. Had a few times where one bulb didn't fire, hate that. Ended up going to this kit: https://www.distantxtremes.com/store/p1164/D5S-Hylux-HID-Upgrade-System.html#/ Got the hylux ballasts, was an easy install. Lights are ever so slightly more blue at 5500k, but they are brighter and they have a bigger hotspot as compared to the old upgrade bulbs. Really wanted to upgrade the projectors but after cutting the back of one of my headlights off I realized only way to do it on my 16 is to separate the lens which I'm not wanting to do. So far two thumbs up on the Hylux kit. Only beef is when I ordered they were on back order and I didn't know that until after I placed my order. Took 2 weeks to get but showed up as described. Pic shows DDM 35w bulb vs the kit.
  3. I have a 2016 Sierra and it has Android Auto, I thought I remembered reading something once that AA was added via update at some point on the 16's. I bought mine used a little over a year ago and it was on there. I'd call my local dealership and ask how much that update runs.
  4. Buddy had a Nissan, spent as much time in the dealers garage as his. Has had no issues with his Ford now. They all have issues. Wait until the new car smell wears off on that Tundra and you realize how much more comfortable your old seats were and how much better your old truck ran. I had a Tundra, really nice drive train, not too comfy of a ride. My current 16 5.3 Sierra has eaten 2 FI in 26,000 miles, my 3year 36 is up in 2 months. We'll see how this goes.
  5. I'm with you, I don't tow a lot. Last Sierra and Yukon I had both had the 6.2 tuned. Yeah, it's got more than the 5.3, but I really don't miss the 6.2 as much as I thought. I specifically hunted out a 5.3 too to avoid that 30% gas premium. My 3 year 36,000 is up in September and I'll promptly be getting a tune again to get rid of the tq and engine management and 4cyl mode and I'll have an even bigger smile every time I get in!
  6. Factory tires would slip when they forecasted 10% chance of rain. Put on Falken wild peak and you have to practically floor it to worry about losing any traction in rain. They were very good this past winter as well, snow and ice.
  7. Got rid of the chrome molding and a few emblems on the rear.
  8. Still working good, once every few months one won't fire, only beef is they seem to jiggle easy on the bumps, but what do you do? Factory output is pathetic.
  9. Rough Country pain in ass to install. Fit could be better RC grill dimensions are not a perfect match to the factory grill hole. Now I gotta fix up those paint chips.
  10. Question about the Fast Headlights Mini D2S projector upgrade...You don't get any shaking from the bulbs do you? Like you hit a bump and you can see the headlight jiggle on the road? I've pulled the dust cap on the driver side (I have a 16 Sierra with the factory HID) and you can move the bulb up and down with your hand a little bit which I'm confident is what causes the jiggling. Weather will hopefully turn here soon and I'm itching to pull the trigger on this upgrade. I'm a headlight upgrade and a tune away from not wanting to look at another vehicle for a looooong time! I have the 35w upgrade bulbs (DDM tuning flavor) and I've had a handful of times when one of those bastards doesn't fire and that fires me up!!!
  11. Both of mine do it too, got a 16. I have DDM 35w bulbs and notice it more because they are brighter. Got a level kit so fronts are turned down quite a bit. Have contemplated the projector swap but I'd be super pissed if it still did it after all that work. Don't know what to do, I'm gonna mess with it more when she warms up a bit.
  12. Good to hear it's a solid product at a great price! Looks awesome!
  13. I got some 35W 4500k D5S, the DDM Tuning brand. Cons: -In 4 months I've had it happen probably 10 times where one of the lights didn't fire and I had to turn the lights off an on and it came on on the second try every time. -The light is a little bluer than the factory lights, this is a con for me, I like the whiter light. -When I hit bumps I can see the beam jiggle if you will or shake on the road, like the bulb or headlight is loose. Checked my headlights, they are tight, it's like the bulbs don't fit in sung enough to the socket or there is some other deficiency. Both headlights do it. I don't remember my factory lamps ever doing this. Pros: -THEY ARE WAY BRIGHTER, like at least 1.5 times brighter than the factory lamps -You can get different colors if you are into that -The beam pattern does not look to me to be any different than the stock beam pattern, no getting flashed by oncoming drivers and scattering light everywhere Even with the cons I won't go back to those piss poor factory lamps. Even with the new lamps the stock HID in our old 2011 5 series and the 2016 ES350 put these truck headlights to shame. I read the factory LED lights are way better, that would have been reason for me to find a truck with them. Live and learn and try some new headlight mods, truck is still pretty awesome!
